Presentation
The Art and History of Meudon museum is housed in a beautiful seventeenth century in Meudon in the Hauts-de-Seine, a historic monument since 1891.

Ambroise Paré lived around 1550 and it was acquired in 1676 by Armande Béjart, Molière's widow, who ends his days there. The remains will then change ownership several times before being purchased by the City of Meudon in 1941 that creates it, in 1943, a local history museum.

Become a municipal museum in 1973, thanks to the donation of collections gathered by the Friends of Meudon, it presents the history of the city and its inhabitants, and since 2003 has the label "museum of France."

The museum houses works especially sculptors, especially in the second half of the twentieth century: Auguste Rodin, Jean Arp, César, François Stahly, Parvine Curie, Simone Boisecq, Karl-Jean Longuet; Juana Muller, Raymond Veysset, András Beck.

The artists are also represented (Alberto Magnelli, Jean Le Moal, Francis Montanier).
The collections include a beautiful set of landscape painting of the nineteenth century with the works of Charles-François Daubigny, Jules Dupré, Narcisse Virgilio Díaz, Stanislas Lépine, Charles Guilloux but Albert Marquet.
The museum was closed in December 2008 to spring 2011 to allow the execution of works.
